Kokopelli Rests

A close-up of the rock art found in Canyon de Chelly. The famous Kokopelli can be seen reclining here but still playing his flute. I have read that this may symbolize where a group of migrating people stopped to rest.

There are many handprints here (positive and negative) where some have dipped their hands in paints and marked a spot and others have blown pigment onto and around their hand to creative a negative print. Also seen here is a zig-zag symbol which may mean lightning or echoes.
